Figure 1

Scatter plot of the relationship between total body bone mineral density (BMD) (A) and T -score (B), lowest at any region, and carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) measurements in 111 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and 111 sex- and age-matched controls. (A) The Pearson correlation coefficient was −0.26, P = 0.006 for the patients, and −0.27, P = 0.005 for the controls. (B) The respective coefficients were −0.33, P = <0.001, and −0.24, P = 0.012.
